Library Initiatives

  • Explore New Initiatives

    Libraries are called on to be a resource for many topical issues and the Library of Michigan is supportive of public library involvement in these state and national initiatives. Some of the initiatives are ones that the Library of Michigan is involved in by providing training and materials, others are issues where the Library has information to provide to libraries. Please see the initiatives below for a range of materials.
